Donald Trump says Bob Corker "begged" me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee

President Trump tore Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) early Sunday, saying the GOP administrator “asked” him to underwrite his reelection offer and declared his retirement after the president withheld his help.

“Representative Bob Corker ‘asked’ me to support him for re-race in Tennessee. I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he couldn’t win without my underwriting). He additionally needed to be Secretary of State, I said ‘Pass.’ He is likewise to a great extent in charge of the shocking Iran Deal!” Trump tweeted.

“Thus, I would completely anticipate that Corker will be a negative voice and obstruct our incredible plan. Didn’t have the guts to run!” the president proceeded.

Corker, who is the administrator of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, reported a month ago that he would not look for reelection in 2018.

Corker was the principal representative to declare that he will resign for the 2018 primaries and has turned out to be progressively disparaging of Trump.

A week ago, the Tennessee Republican said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and head of staff John Kelly are shielding the nation from “tumult.”

Trump partners, for example, previous White House boss strategist Stephen Bannon, have communicated enthusiasm for showing essential difficulties to foundation Republicans in Congress.
